I travel a good deal and like to keep my suitcase small and at my side. Black and navy are pragmatic but often drab and make me look a bit like a pilgrim without the hat. These wraps were a way to keep color at hand. I use mine around my neck, my waist, as an impromptu pareo and on the ground for a picnic in the park.
In 1999 I took a trip to Morocco. The textures, the colors, the bustle and the desert were constant sources of inspiration. This pattern was inspired by colorful striped bowls in the Marrakesh souk. This is inspired by one of several line paintings I made in response to the famous plein air market.
